Mery Christmas - 3mm glass beads and compost

Post  Khaimraj Seepersad on Thu Dec 25, 2014 2:40 pm

Hello Folks,

Happy Holidays.

A long term project. Started off with a seedling Fustic [ Chlorophora t.] and a soil made of 3mm glass beads with aged compost.

Having repotted and sent into a larger pot, for the first years all the energy will be devoted to branch extensions, to see how thick I can take the trunk and first 3 branches on this growing medium.
Feel free to comment yay or nay.
Later.

Tree as it was -



The glass beads in the soil - the other beads are an osmocote type fertiliser.



Soil exposed -



New pot - moss added to shield the beads from water and mess to cover all from the birds.



The entire tree with new pot -

Khaimraj,
First, happy Christmas and a fantastic New Year.
I would guess your "soil" will work just great.
Keep us posted.

PS Gmelinas are thriving
